Product Description

Product Description

"Stretching our imagination through the imagery of lyrics and music, the writing team of McCartney and Lennon proved to be the most influential force within the world of music up to that point! Most young fans that gravitated to the guitar from the radically changing 60's era, can without question, credit the Beatles for providing the inspiration and that is why they are so inspiring today". "My dream for a long time in my life was to somehow create my own personal tribute. It has taken this long mainly because these chosen pieces are almost like (in the minds of us Beatle lovers) sacred songs that shouldn't or needn't be messed with. No one can improve "Sgt Pepper," as an example. It is simply my deep affection that hasn't faded through the years and never confusing the nostalgia for substance and quality. It simply was a search to find a way to combine my world (whatever that is) into theirs, as I set out to do when I recorded the solo guitar CD of Piazzolla, "Diabolical Inventions and Seduction" in 2006". "So, as I only carried this as a thought for many years, it hadn't become a reality until a spur of the moment decision during the late spring of my 2012 tour in Europe! I got the incentive in May 2012 to enquire about Abbey Road Studios. The place has a magic. I mean a kind of magic that transcends its nostalgic history. The sound we loved from those early recordings is the result of some serious lab technicians who rewired the heck out of everything there! My co-producer and I agree that the rooms were by far the best sounding, acoustically-perfect rooms we had ever heard! Nowhere else came close!" "The studio today is primarily used for major motion picture film scoring and private recording artists. From the onset, it proved to be the most incredible studio experience I had up until this point!" "I returned later to Abbey Road Studios in November to record another four tracks in two days and then the last time in Feb 2013, we completed the recording and mixes of the final five tracks. There is so much meaning and passion involved with this project and stories that go along with it. I am just glad The Beatles existed, for in my eyes the world would have never been the same without them and here is my little example of my own personal tribute for the immense joy they brought me and the millions of others! They simply transformed modern music!" - Al Di Meola

Al Di Meola is not only celebrating the Beatles, but the history of Abbey Road Studios as well. This tribute is heartfelt and that makes it so special. It is wonderful to see that one of the worlds most celebrated guitarists is just a fan too. This recording truly captured Di Meola's "Kid in the Candy Store" feeling. This is not a cheap Pro-Tools production; Di Meola went all out!!! 5 stars just alone for effort; the performance is stellar, honestly it's off the scale. *****∞

Not a Beatles fan so was going to give this one a miss, however I did buy it after listening to excerpts on line. Al Di Meola's genius guitar playing gives these classic pop songs a completely different angle. It is really an excellent album. Well worth acquiring it.

I was instantly turned on to the magic and wonder of Al di Meola by the Friday night in San Francisco album many years ago. Being a huge beatles fan, I couldn't wait for this compilation to be released. From the first notes there is an instant smile of reconition, love of the feel of the music and his clear joy at interpreting songs that have a place in his heart. I would run out of superlatives saying how enjoyable this album is. Buy it whether you're a fan of the maestro, a fan of the beatles or just enjoy fabulous new interpretations. You won't be disappointed, there is (just like the beatles) a reward from each new listen.

If you like Al Dimeola playing acoustic you will love this album. The Beatles never sounded so good. It's an Album you won't tire of guitar players will enjoy it.

Hmm, tough to review this one. On the one hand, there's your standard level of flawless playing but on the other hand calling it a tribute is playing it somewhat fast and loose. Most tracks will be unrecognisable to anyone who isn't into the Beatles in a big way, which I guess is fair enough. But I was hoping for a little more homage to the source material.

Very good, but not really my cup of tea; gave it to a friend who plays acoustic guitar.
